Livia Tomasini working with fibroblast from patients with Autism spectrum disorders at Professor Vaccarino's Laboratory of Developmental Neurobiology.
Our scientific goals are to:
- Allow a direct cellular and functional study of the dynamics of human neural development
- Correlate cellular and functional events in neural development with underlying changes in genomic sequence, epigenomic imprinting and regulation of gene expression
- Develop cellular models of biological mechanisms underpinning neuropsychiatric disorders of genetic and non-genetic origins
